Indonesia’s national broadcaster, Media Nusantara Citra Tbk, has chosen a complete broadcast system from PlayBox Technology for its MCN News Channel. This was selected after comparison with other brands, followed by evaluation of the PlayBox Technology solution.

“The technical and operational staff at MNC News Channel required a system that was logically structured, easy to use, reliable and straightforward to expand,” comments PlayBox Technology, Asia Pacific Country Manager Desmon Goh. “Our proposed solution met all four criteria and included the further advantages of fast installation and locally-available support. Installed in a single day, the equipment provided to MNC News Channel included two PlayBox Technology channel-in-a-box servers in main and redundant configuration. These each consists of AirBox automated playout, TitleBox CG & Interactive Graphics, and CaptureBox automated content-ingest system. 32 TB of network storage is also provided. The system is entirely rack-mounted and housed in the network’s data centre with interfaces to the MNC News master control room.”

“The MCN News Channel project shows the efficiency with which our sales and engineering teams are able to respond to the demand for broadcast infrastructure of practically any scale,” adds Pavlin Rahnev, PlayBox Technology Director, Solution Sales. “There are over 13,000 playout and branding channels worldwide relying on PlayBox Technology. Each installation is scaled to match current needs while retaining the option of adding additional channels, extra facilities or additional storage capacity.”
